In his new role, he will be responsible for a range of key properties, including Hilton Hyde Park, where he held his first ever general manager role for Hilton, as well as Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, Hilton Wembley, Hilton Kensington and Hilton Olympia.
Stockland has worked at many London-based Hilton properties during his career, and the hotel group said he will be “using his decades long experience to help innovate and inspire all the hotels in his new cluster”.
He will be based out of Heathrow, where he will oversee the refurbishment of Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, which is set to be unveiled in spring 2021.
Discussing the refurbishment, Stockland said: “As well as the very strong team at the hotel we have brought in a significant number of specialist consultants who will be working with us on the refurbishment.
“Despite current circumstances, it’s a very exciting time for this property and we look forward to the completion of the refurbishment. This hotel has always had a first class reputation for providing our guests with a superb customer experience and maintaining that reputation is very high on my list of priorities.”
He added: “The hospitality industry is going to have to operate in a very different way in the future and I am looking forward to being at the forefront of identifying new opportunities and innovating to meet customer demands.
“I am very lucky to have very dedicated teams at all of these hotels and I’m looking forward to working closely and supporting all of them.”
